After investigating the University of Mississippi, the NCAA has announced their ruling.

According to CBS Sports, Ole Miss will receive three years probation, a two-year total bowl ban, vacation of all regular-season and postseason wins in which ineligible student-athletes competed and scholarship reductions through 2018-2019.

If he is hired prior to Nov. 30, 2018, head football coach Hugh Freeze will be required to serve a two conference-game suspension. Many other coaches and administrators got served with show-cause orders as well.

The report released by the NCAA says the athletic program “lacked institutional control and fostered an unconstrained culture of booster involvement in football recruiting.”

The NCAA also released this statement on boosters:

“This is now the third case over three decades that has involved the boosters and football program. Even the head coach acknowledged that upon coming to Mississippi, he was surprised by the ‘craziness’ of boosters trying to insert themselves into his program.”
